Within our list of Areas of Law found below, today we highlight 9/11 Latent Injury/Illness, a newly emerging branch of Personal Injury Litigation.

9/11 Latent Injury/Illness is a growing epidemic, a national tragedy and has resulted in the birth of a totally different type of Workers’ Compensation.

Although we know when the attacks on the World Trade Center happened, it is impossible to ascertain the exact date of an eligible person’s injury or illness.

 Therefore, all 9/11 Claims are considered to have occurred “post 9/11” and referred to as “latent” to convey the dormant, or hidden nature of illnesses that not show symptoms until years after the initial injury of toxic exposure.

 A separate Trust Fund has been set-up through the Workers’ Compensation Board. 

Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. has streamlined the process for those who may be entitled to file a monetary claim.

With one phone call, we will register your:
